The Grandstand

The Grandstand talks about hiking in a way that is personal and humorous with the belief that spending time in the wilderness makes us humbler people.

The blog is written and founded by Marina, a resident of Los Angeles, who believes that the outdoor industry could use an upgrade and a few more women voices. After decades as an indoor kid whose favorite place was the mall, Marina went on a strenuous hike one day in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range and discovered that the world was more thrilling than she ever could have imagined. She is a practicing graphic designer and dog lover.
